Grrrr! I just spoke to a Dr at my practice (never see the same one twice!) and explained how unwell and achy I feel. I had blood tests on Friday 6th Jan and was told my TSH is 3.8 but they didn't do the T3 or T4 test. I got a doctor on Mon 10th to redo my blood test to include T3 and T4. However the lab refused to do my thyroid tests again as I only had it done a few days before and they won't now for a couple of months as I fall into the normal parameters. So my CRP is high so they are going to check with another blood test to test if I have rheumatoid arthritis! I explained what Thyroid Uk advises and he said that isn't what he is taught! So yet more blood damn vampires! I know this will come back negative and be a complete waste of time! No history of any arthritis in my family. I also explained that I barely had any symptoms of hypothyroidism before I started taking Levothyroxine. I think I need to change doctors surgery or go private.
Sorry for rant! Needed to express my frustration!
What type of doctor specialises in Thyroid illness? The best and trusted company for blood/Thyroid tests? I think I need to pay to get myself feeling better.
